Learning language relies on the function of the left brain, but learning songs relies on the function of the right brain. Only using the left brain to learn Chinese language can make students tired easily and make class boring. So, this paper analyzes the effects of teaching songs in Chinese language class from the perspective of cognitive neuroscience and also shows how to teach Chinese songs effectively. Teaching songs can bring three positive effects: the first is to make the right brain developed; the second is to improve students` attentions and learning participations; and the third is to help information to be saved in the long-term memory storage. Making up and teaching appropriate songs in Chinese language class won`t only affect the progress of teaching, but will improve learning efficiency.
